Fujifilm X-T20: The wise choice for the cost conscious buyer
Online review site Dpreview has published its full review of Fuji’s mid level mirrorless Trans X camera the Fuji X-T20 and they seem very impressed
“Fujifilm’s X-T20 takes the design and handling of the X-T10, adds many of the ‘guts’ of the X-T2, and stirs until a very competent mirrorless camera emerges. It offers the direct setting controls found on nearly all of Fujifilm X-series cameras that make it a real pleasure to use. Image quality has improved, courtesy of Fujifilm’s latest 24MP X-Trans CMOS sensor, and the AF system has been updated, as well, though its performance is inconsistent. The X-T20 also gains 4K video capture and clean HDMI output, as well as the company’s latest Film Simulation modes.
The Fujifilm X-T20 isn’t just a very competent camera; it’s a competent camera that’s fun to shoot with, unlike most of its peers. While things like its build quality and attractive design and responsive performance are all appealing, it’s the combination of numerous direct controls and a great viewfinder that make the X-T20 a camera I want to pick up and use.
The X-T20 has shortcomings, of course, like a good-but-not-great autofocus system, 4K video that’s not as good as the best of its peers and a few ergonomic foibles, but in this reviewer’s eyes, the X-T20 is a midrange mirrorless camera that should be strongly considered.
